Twelve Things You Must do During the Holiday Season

There’s nothing better than a checklist to keep you organized. Am I right? It feels so good to check things off as you go, and feel like you really accomplished something. Is it normal to go so far as to write things down after you get it done, just to check the box? I mean, I’m just asking for a friend. At any rate, the holidays get so busy, from Thanksgiving meal preparation to New Year’s Eve plans of staying up to ring in the New Year, so I thought I’d get your personal list going by giving you my top 12.

Fast forward to 1998, when we got married, and I weighed approximately 240 pounds. We had our first child in 2002. Due to my obesity, it was a struggle for me to get pregnant and we did have to use infertility medication to help us conceive her. I always thought after she was born I’ll lose the weight. Needless to say, that never happened and I continued to gain weight. In 2005, we had our 2nd child. After he was born I weighed more than I ever had. At my heaviest, I was 270 pounds. This weight was several months postpartum.  (I’m only 5’ 3” tall with small/medium bone structure.) As you can imagine this effected every area of my life. I was sad, depressed, and ashamed of what I had done to my body. I was equally terrified to do anything about it.
